First of all, dear Mechtild, quite right to praise any and all those who give up inspiration and hope in these days and model for us what Endurance Beyond Hope is like. Praise them indeed! It was not accidental that the first film came out so shortly after Sept. 11.

Now onto the poem, wow! Powerful, sad, despairing, my dear jan-u-wine as you delve once more into that tortured soul at the same time Frodo feels Sauron delve in with the worst of the rapes the Ring-bearer has suffered through. Yet this does not show just despair but also the endurance of that dear one's soul, body, heart and will. I hadn't heard of Mount Doom by that name before, but it fits and dare I say the poem ends with not exactly hope, but with the certainty that Sauron will be defeated, even if Frodo is also. Love it!

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

I'm sorry that I've been so late in replying, Antane, and I am glad that you found the effort worthy!
